    Background: Extra-articular proximal tibial fractures account for 5-11 % of all tibial shaft fractures. In recent years, closed reduction and minimally invasive plating and multidirectional locked intramedullary nailing have both become widely used treatment modalities for proximal and distal...

    Surgical treatment of proximal tibial fractures requires open reduction and internal fixation. The operative exposure causes additional soft-tissue injury and reduces the blood supply to the bone. A cephalograde tibial nail should offer comparable mechanical stability without these...

    Between 2004 and 2009, 60 patients with proximal tibial fractures were included in this prospective study. All fractures were treated with the polyaxial locked-plate fixation system (DePuy, Warsaw, IN, USA). Clinical and radiographic data, including fracture pattern, changes in alignment, local...

    Introduction: A tibial nail with fixed-angle locking screws intends to combine the advantages of angular stability and intramedullary stabilization in extraarticular proximal tibial fractures. The goal of this study is to analyze if the angle stable tibial nail (ASN) is biomechanically more...

    Distal humeral periprosthetic fractures below intramedullary nail devices are complex and challenging to treat, in particular due to the osteopenic/porotic nature of bone found in these patients. Fixation is often difficult to satisfactorily achieve around the intramedullary device, whilst...

    Nonunions of the distal femur are relatively rare but can occur with or without previous surgery. Many surgical methods have been described for the treatment of these nonunions including external fixation, intramedullary nailing, arthroplasty, and fixed angle plating. While arthroplasty may have...

    Fractures of the tibia are one of the most commonly seen orthopedic injuries. Most of them result from a high velocity trauma. While intramedullary nailing of tibial diaphyseal fractures is considered as the golden standard form of treatment for such cases, many metaphyseal and...
